This photo is of a mug I bought a few years ago at the Minnesota State Fair or the Anoka County Fair at a fresh lemonade stand. It holds 60 ounces. Now that's a lot. I paid $5 for it filled with fresh lemonade and I can take it back getting it refilled for only $3 each time I wish. Now if I can only recall which fair i got this from I would be doing great. Do you have a mug this huge with a straw in it like mine? You can actually see the tenseness in my hand as I try to hold it while it is full of liquids and ice. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

It is usually very hot and muggy during the fair so that's one reason they offer the huge mugs with future refills. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Well I can help you there it was the Anoka County Fair as I was with you. I remember cause the boys had a hard time trying to hold the thing.

Thanks. I would have felt like a fool walking around asking where the booth was at the State Fair to refill this. The Anoka County Fair is really close now. Mom wants to go into Anoka Saturday by the way and, we also want to eat at the China King Buffet or any Asian bufftet Saturday. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM DADDY!!~

I enjoyed every drop of it, and we didn't have to stop every little while for me to get coffee!

I had a chance to buy some a year ago at a local (Annual) Rib Fest but they were $6 each and refills were $3 I wasn't sure we could afford it at the time and so I did not get them....My husband was upset with me for it! LOL I told him if we go this year then I will get at least one of them! If I do, I'll post the photo for you! ~Heavens~

We have one not quite that big. Ours are 52oz from a circle K convenience store. Not sure how much the refills were but less than a dollar. We no longer have circle k's here they were bought out by stripes. We also used to have a large one, not sure the correct size from dairy queen I think and refills were .25 cents.

That is one massive cup, I cannot believe the size of it. It must take some lemonade to fill that beast up! I bet you go to the toilet loads drinking that!

yes it is a monster to say the least. With the heat and humidity it doesn't last all that long really. Plus the lemonade is better than a pop. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Sounds like a gallon jug might work as well.. But you are right, if you don't know where you got it, how can you get the bargain of having it refilled..

Well my daughter reminded me where I got it. So now I know where to take it. The Anoka County Fair at the end of July I believe. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Wow! Hold 60 oz. huh! That would be a day and a half drink for me. Fresh Lemonade does sound good. Speaking of which just this morning I added some lemon concentrate to my water this morning to give it a little flavoring! Not as good as fresh lemonade, but does the trick for now.

60 ounces?? I felt the urge to go pee just reading that. I can see the tenseness in your hand as you hold it. Don't over do it Grandpa Bob. Now I'm thirty for some lemonade.
